My name is Pepper and I am a playful, friendly little dude who is looking for my forever home.
I love just about everyone I meet and I enjoy playing with people. Although I’m not terribly playful with toys now, I may become more so once I'm out of the shelter I'm staying in and inside a home.
I’m comfortable with all types of handling and will readily share my food with people.
I get a little scared of unusual new things and people, so I may choose to hide behind you. I look to my human companion for direction. My adopters will need to patiently introduce me to new experiences that concern me so that I can get more comfortable with them.
I am very playful with other dogs, am very respectful of them, and will enjoy their company immensely.
I don't know any basic commands but I'm eager to learn for a taste of my favorite treats! I definitely need to learn to walk nicely on leash and not to be jumpy. Training may help build my confidence and will help us forge a relationship.
If you are interested in adopting Pepper, please contact the Town of Hempstead Animal Shelter at 516-785-5220 or email email@example.com for more information.

, all free of charge.
Many loveable cats and dogs can also be taken home – at no charge – during the shelter’s “My Furry Valentine” pet adoption event on Saturday, Feb. 16 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
